Dsy Wellness & Longevity Group: A health platform built on the idea of ​​developing and promoting self-help preventive care


The wellness industry is booming. Spending on products and services that improve fitness, diet, appearance, sleep, immunity, and mental health is expected to grow exponentially. Although the modern concept of wellness has been around for around 60 years, today’s consumers perceive “wellness” from a much broader and more sophisticated perspective that includes not only physical/mental fitness and optimal nutrition, but also personal appearance. Across the world, people are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of achieving optimal wellness through preventive healthcare. To put things in perspective, health and wellness are often defined as the process that an individual pursues to achieve desired mental and physiological health.

In general, promoting physical and mental health requires extensive research into the current health and wellness industry. The global wellness economy was valued at $4.9 trillion in 2019, but dropped to $4.4 trillion in 2020 due to the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. As we enter the post-COVID era, this economy is expected to grow exponentially again as an informed public becomes more aware of the importance of preventive and personalized medicine. The industry is projected to reach approximately $7 trillion by 2025, registering an average annual growth rate of 9.9%. With nearly two decades of impressive track record in treating and managing major chronic metabolic disorders linked to dietary and lifestyle choices and genetic predisposition, DSY Wellness & Longevity Group is Malaysia’s largest wellness center offering evidence-based adjunctive treatments for cancer and tumors, ischemic heart disease, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, hypertension, skin diseases, allergies, autoimmune diseases, liver diseases and early renal failure.

“Many of the patients who seek help from our center are from ASEAN and North Asia,” says Professor Steve Yap, CEO of DSY Wellness & Longevity Group and a sought-after presenter and speaker at national and international conferences in the fields of nutrition/functional, metabolic and anti-ageing/regenerative medicine. A pioneer in the practice of cutting-edge evidence-based complementary medicine therapies, he draws clients from across the Asian region. He has also served on various technical committees within the Ministries of Health and Education for the past decade.

Inspiring the world through health programs
DSY Wellness Group provides wellness programs and seminars to corporate executives and managers across various industries, helping them address mental and physiological stressors with the aim of increasing work productivity and reducing absenteeism. Some of the company’s innovative clinical protocols have been published in academic papers, journals and newspapers. The World Health Organization’s goal of reducing 40 million premature deaths from chronic diseases worldwide by 25% by 2025 is aligned with DSY’s corporate wellness programs and naturopathic protocols. While naturopathic medicines are widely accepted across Asia, DSY is perhaps the first complementary medicine wellness center to provide evidence-based, non-invasive adjunctive treatments for major chronic diseases.

Over the past decade, the training offered by the DSY Group has led to an increase in the number of Nutritional and Functional Medicine practitioners serving secondary healthcare needs. The academic/technical input of DSY’s senior practitioners has led to other medical practitioners from several East Asian countries enrolling in many university-accredited training programs. “Our patients prefer a more holistic approach to treatment with our non-invasive treatments, which complement drug and surgical therapies. Clearly, patients today want more control over their healthcare, and we aim to help them with cutting-edge research results backed by years of clinical experience. Most patients are referred by family and friends whose chronic illnesses have previously been resolved at our center,” Steve emphasizes. A major strength of the DSY Center is its approach to viewing patients’ chronic non-communicable diseases as having a “metabolic” character, and thus likely to be reversible through diet and lifestyle changes. This metabolic concept is strongly reflected in all of the complementary treatment protocols and popular training programs. However, the Center does refer patients with acute illnesses to treatment with conventional drug therapies.

  • A major strength of the DSY Center is that it views patients’ chronic non-communicable diseases as being “metabolic” in nature and therefore likely to be reversible through dietary and lifestyle changes.

Envisioning a brighter future
The World Health Organization highlights that around 80% of the world’s population still relies on natural and herbal remedies for their basic healthcare needs. DSY Wellness aims to strengthen this naturopathic system by providing additional clinical evidence for its application in managing chronic diseases. With a vision to position naturopathy in preventative and personalized healthcare, DSY plans to embrace digitalization and big data analytics to enhance its current offerings in the coming years. By applying and implementing mobile AI technology via 5G services, DSY Wellness aims to replicate its hard-won success internationally, especially in promoting adjunctive treatment of all major chronic health disorders.
